Dr Obnxs Jeremy should stick to cars and not energy issues. Every time he opens his mouth on non-car issues, he does nothing but demonstrate the depth of his ignorance. Other than that, a pretty fair piece of video. I was surprised at his choice at the end, as he is a total “petrol head”…. And his comments about his real world driving experience are informative as well. The biggest surprise was that even he is learning what the future will hold, and it won’t be based on pure gas propulsion. Even he is starting to see the benefits of the tech….. Nick Dawson Quote: “If the M3 a typewriter, then the i8 is a laptop, in its early stages of development. It’s not quite there yet, but it’s getting there”. Don’t you just love ‘Jez’! JB Remember that us 31 mpg (imperial) or 26 mpg (US). Not bad, but not stellar. Pete Koepfgen I get that fuel economy in my >10 year old Porsche 911 Carrera.
